RE: Orchids for the northern USA

Lady Slippers are very hard to transplant. We have tried at the nature
center to move some into an area for public viewing, as their natural
stand is quite out of the way. We took a large portion of soil, found an
area with exact like conditions... but they didn't make it. We have
since abandoned trying this. I don't know if cultivated ones vs the pink
natural ones make a difference or not. I am sure others here would know.
But I will say that our area of them are gorgeous when blooming!
